When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in 1 Place. Suddenly a Sound like a Mighty Rushing Wind came from Heaven and filled the whole House [Temple Precinct] where they were sitting. They saw Tongues like Flames of Fire that separated and came to Rest on each of them. And they were all Filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other Languages as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem God-Fearing Jews from every Nation under Heaven. And when this Sound rang out, a Crowd came together in Bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking his own Language.

Astounded and Amazed, they asked, Are not all these Men who are speaking Galileans? How is it then that each of us hears them in his own Native Language? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; Visitors from Rome, both Jews and Converts to Judaism; Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the Wonders of God in our own tongues! Astounded and Perplexed, they asked one another, What does this mean? But others Mocked them and said,
They are Drunk on New Wine! -Acts 2:1-12

True Pentecost? Which One? There are 3 ‘Shavuots’. There are 3 ‘Pentecosts’. The Word, Shavuot, is plainly inferring to a Period of a 7 Week Count. It was the 1 Day after Passover that then the Feast Counts began. The Word, Shavuot, when the Hellenized Jews observed the Shavuot Count after Passover, called that 1 Day after, the 50th Day of Pentecost. The issue is that the Pentecost or the 50 Day Count that is Recorded in Acts 2 is not the initial one from ‘The Day after the Sabbath’ of Passover.

This study will touch upon this Theory with several Articles of prior Research done. For sure, there is a Deep Divide over nearly 2000 Years worth of Church Tradition on this Subject of when Pentecost occurred. In part, the Confusion is based on how there were initially 3 Minor Feasts of Summer, that of the First Fruits of the New Grain, New Wine and New Olli. And? These were counted in segments of 50 Days each being apart. One has come to Realize and Understand, for many Years now that the Pentecost or the Shavuot Count, being the 2nd of the 3 Counts, was what occurred in Acts 2.

And that it specifically correlated to the Feast of New Wine. It is Conjectured, that after the Acts 2 Pentecost, and start of the Church Age, the Religious Jews, stopped celebrating the 2 other Minor Feasts, those being Feast of the New Wine and New Oil. Why? They were getting too many ‘Christian Converts’ on the Feast of New Wine. This was the case, as 3000 Souls were added to the Faith in Acts 2. This 2nd Pentecost or 2nd Shavuot 50 Day Counts echoes the Day of the Golden Calf Rebellion on Mount Sinai. The Day after Nisan 14 is how the Jews determine the Start of the Count.

Religious Traditions

They consider Passover as that Sabbath that is implied in the Torah. Thus, the Day after being a Sabbath, is the 15th for them, not the Weekly Sabbath one. The Gospel Accounts infer this as the High Day Sabbath and why they all had to rush to prepare the Passover Meal. And why no ‘Dead Man’ could be left on a Tree, hung or else Curse Israel and Defile the Passover, etc.

This is why the Roman Soldiers had to break the Bones of those on the Crosses, so that their Bodies could collapse and they could not push up against the Cross Beam to exhale for air, or Beath. They basically suffocated to Death by doing this. When the Roman Soldiers came to Jesus, the Scriptures state that He had already Died. Meaning...Recall that Jesus was not Technically 'Murdered' or His Death was determined by Man's Timing. No, Jesus chose the exact Year, Month, Day, Hour and Second in which He determined when He would Die. It was on His Terms!

‘The Reason the Father Loves Me is that I Lay Down My Life in order to Take It Up again. No one Takes it from Me, but I Lay It Down of My Own Accord. I have Authority to Lay It Down and Authority to Take It Up again. This Charge I have received from My Father. Again there was Division among the Jews because of Jesus’ Message’. -John 10:17-19

It is the Day after the Weekly Sabbath, that is ‘Sunday’, that the Christians determine the Count. That is why, for any given Year, and any really, for example, the Jewish Shavuot will be ‘Off’ from the Christian Pentecost, etc. The Day Count Difference will always be 3-4 Days and depending if one starts in the Evening of the Day before. As to the New Wine being the 9th of Av? This is now the latest Assertion that the Acts 2 Pentecost occurred on Av 9. Well, anything is possible, especially if one is using a different Start Day to Count the 50-50-50 Pentecosts.

Not sure. One would doubt it because Av 9 is always Day 113 in the Jewish Calendar. One does not see this Supposition, but it is because one has been focusing on the 50 Day Counts, solely based on the Double Count from the Day after Nisan 14. If this be the case, then Av 9 is always beyond the Feast of New Wine. So, whatever Day that falls in, it cannot be the Feast of New Wine, as one Understands it. To stress, the 9th of Av will always then be the 113th Day since Nisan 15.

So, this Count would be way beyond the scope of the 50-50-50 Feasts of Summer Pattern and Day Count. Those that are Proponents of an Av 9 Rapture Timing appear to link it to the Evil Report of the Spies occurred on or correlated to a 9th of Av. Perhaps, but the Golden Calf incident is a Curse enough, because that is precisely the Day that Moses came down the Mountain after the initial 40 Day Count and smashed the Tablets. It is there that the 3000 where Judged and Perished. As the Traditional Jewish and Christian Pentecost approaches, one wanted to reassert one’s Theory of how the Pentecost of Acts 2 is the Feast of New Wine, etc

1. The Pentecost of Acts 2 is or occurred on the Feast of New Wine. It is not the Traditional one that is Celebrated on the Feast of the First Fruits of the Wheat. It is too Early and for that reason that the First Fruits of the Wheat are offered at this point. The Main Wheat Harvest is still 3 Months out, etc.

2. That this Corresponding Feast of the First Fruits of the New Wine Arrival of the Holy Spirit, was on the 2nd of the 3 Minor Feasts of the Summer. Those being the ‘First Fruits’ of the Wheat, Wine and of the Oil.

And one is well-aware that one is going against nearly 2000 Years of ‘Church Tradition’. But for Years, one has introduced this Concept of a Double Count initially, and then of there being 3 Minor Feasts of Summer, a while back that correspond to this Theory, in one’s Opinion. One can be wrong of course. One has updated one’s 2 Primary Articles (See Below) on the Subject.


Rapture of the Brides of the Vineyard Typology 


Determining the End of the Church Age 

They are of the initial Pentecost Double-Count and then of the 3 Minor Feasts of Summer and how the Sinai Journey confirms the Theory and Day Count. You do not hear this Teaching, ever in Churches, as to the Rapture that could be in a Summer Wheat Harvest Season. This issue is ‘What Year’? Nonetheless, one will be  On-the-Watch for sure during those Times, more so. But one Stipulates that the Year 2024 will be the Determining Year in one’s Calculations.

The following is as to why, at this point on one’s Learning Curve and Understanding, the Timeline suggests to me a 2025-2032 Tribulation Period. And thus, most probably a Rapture Year of 2024 then. Perhaps. But 2024 would make the Revelation 12 Sign a ‘7-Year Countdown’ and Warning…just in Time for that ‘Alef-Mem-Tav’, Triple Whammy Solar Eclipse Judgment in 2024 on the USA to make way for the New Luciferian World Order to be ushered-in, etc. Why 2025?

32 AD + 2000 Years
(Peter 1 Day =1000 Year Prophetic Template) = 2032

2032 – 7 Years = 2025
(Matches Missler and others and the Essenes Start of the Last Uma or 70th Week per Research of Ken Johnson.)
